  • Advise on nVidia Quadro 3400 series

    Hi,

    I am using Matrox Millennium G650 right now. It is a 2D card only. No 3D. I am thinking of getting a Leadtek Quadro 3400 3D card. I have pending applications that require 3D card usage - although I don't use 3D per sec. In particular, Vitascene (proDAD) - which works in EDIUS.

    Question - does EDIUS 4.54 have any problems with a Quadro 3400 chipset?

        FX Quadro 3500

        Hello,
        I have 2 Supermicro motherboards (X7DA8 and X7DAE) and I have problems with both, using a PNY Quadro FX 3500 (or an EAX800XT) graphic cards. My computer does not want to start and I have just a black screen. When I use an old and basic graphic card (Asus NX6600GT), which has not a PCIexpress power connector everything is ok. Are my Supermicro cards are incompatible with graphic cards with power connector?
        I had a X6DA8-G2 Supermicro card and I had no problem with my Asus EAX800XT (with power connector).
        I work with Edius 4.54, NX for HDV (PCI-X 64bits) with Expension kit.

        Please help!
        Thanks

          I have a lowly ATI X1900 and it worked fine with Vitascene :)

          If you don't require hardcore 3d application support (such as 3d Max etc) then I don't see why you'd need a Quadro. Better look at the nVidia 8800GTS or something in that line...plus it will save you lots of money for other stuff :)

            I have exactly that Supermicro motherboard (X7DA8). I am currently waiting for my Leadtek Quadro FX 3500 to come in from supplier. I hope not to experience your problem - if mine works fine, then the problem of yours could lie somewhere else. Did you connect the auxiliary power cable to your FX 3500? I suspect - either you didn't connect it or there is something faulty with the power coming over the cable into the board.

              That was my thought, a power supply problem or perhaps he is using the wrong driver.

                Hello,
                I have connected the auxiliary power cable to the graphic card (a new Seasonic S12-650 Energy Plus Series 80-Plus Power supply). A colleague of mine told me that it could be an IRQ's conflict with other slots and I am going to disable all the Ports I don't need (G Lan, Parallel Printer Port, Come1, Com2 serial ports). Also, I am going to take my Canopus cards off(NX+Expansion kit) and try to start my computer with my PNY FX 3500 graphic card only.
                I am waiting Tingsern's experience to see what to do.
                Thanks to all of you for your help.

                  Right - please wait while the supplier gets my Quadro 3500. He told me 1 - 2 weeks ... right now, it is about 1 week already.

                  Wait a minute !!! Mohchabi, you said you have an existing video card that works with your Windows, right? That implies you must have already installed that card's device driver into your Windows. Did you UNINSTALL that device driver, boot up Windows again and configure it for pure VGA mode first? VGA is the lowest common denominator. The card BIOS supports the VGA - no device driver. Then you remove that existing video card, plug in the Quadro 3500, power up again - try it and see if it works.

                  UNLESS of course, if there is a IRQ conflict - VERY Rare these days - you will hear 3 sharp beeps from the BIOS and that's it upon booting up. If you can see the normal BIOS display upon booting up, it means the card is okay. If Windows refuses to start, then I suspect it will the "old" video driver that is still in command.

                  Another possibility is a faulty PNY Quadro 3500 card? Can you take that card to your supplier and test it out on a machine that is working? That wil rule out this possibility.

                    Just on the topic of IRQ conflicts: they are indeed a rarity - usually it's a misconfiguration of the APIC settings in the BIOS, which in turn leads to Windows being installed differently. The bad news there is that if that's the case, it usually means a Windows reinstall, since upon changing the APIC setting, Windows won't "find" anything it's looking for during bootup.

                    Also, be sure not to confuse APIC with ACPI (power management). Aren't acronyms fun?

                      Hi Chabi,

                      Picked up my Quadro 3500 yesterday.

                      Good news for me and (bad news) for you. I uninstalled my Matrox device drivers from my Windows XP, unplug the card from my Supermicro motherboard (X7DA8), plug in my Leadtek Quadro 3500 card, connect the auxiliary power to the card, and power up. NO Problems was detected at all. It came up nicely in both my monitors displaying the BIOS info.

                      Confirmed that there is nothing wrong with the Supermicro motherboard to support the nVidia Quadro 3500 card.

                        Hello,
                        Thank you for your help. I just want to know what kind of power supply do you use. Mine is a "Seasonic S12-650 Watts Energy Plus Series".
                        I have five (05) hard disks SATA, and perhaps it's not enough.

                          Power supply? I don't really know - because it is Supermicro's own redundant power supply. I have to plug in 2 mains power cable into the power supply.

                          I have 8 SCSI (146GB) 10,000 rpm hard-disks connected to 2 SCSI channels to Adaptec RAID controller card + 3 SATA hard-disks (750GB) connected to motherboard SATA controller inside the box.

                          See this URL - http://www.supermicro.com/products/c...745S2-R800.cfm

                          According to the specs, the power supply is 800 watts each (meaning a total of 1600 watts).

                            I have the same case. It is a marvel of manufactoring. As I understand it, you only draw 800 watts. The second PS is there as a backup in case something happens to the first.

                              PJSSSS,

                              Ah ... thanks for the education. That makes perfect sense to me. Once I did see the service engineer pull out one side of my power supply when he had to diagnose some minor problems. So - it is 800 watts power then.

                              Chabi,

                              Have you tested your Quadro card on another machine? Maybe your card is faulty?

                              Or your wire connecting the power supply unit to the Quadro card might be loose?
